Going by the product cycle established in 2021, the next generation of top-end Xiaomi smartphones are projected to contain a vanilla 12, possibly joined by a 12 Pro and a 12 Ultra. However, should some interpretations of a new Digital Chat Station post prove accurate, they might be joined by a 12 Mini.
The putative Android device could be so called thanks to its display dimensions, said to be a relatively short ~6.3 inches in diagonal length. (By contrast, those of the existing Mi 11 Pro and Ultra measure 6.8 inches.) Should it truly be a Xiaomi flagship device, it might well also be called the 12 Youth Edition.
On the other hand, all this hype is based on not much more than a Digital Chat Station post referencing the code-name L3, rumored to correspond to a Mini version teased by Xiaomi officials earlier in the year and now thought to have been relegated from an early 2021 product cycle to a late 2021/2022 one instead thanks to delays and shortages.
The idea of a "12 Mini" is also of course inexorably inspired by the enduring presence of the second-gen iPhone Mini, even though Apple is now said to have dropped the option in favor of more successful big-screen devices instead. Therefore, the future of the possible Xiaomi compact flagship in even further doubt.
